According to a White House Press Release, President Obama has launched an all-(clean)-hands-on-deck approach to the H1N1 virus with the help of cute, cuddly Elmo. In his high-pitched voice, Elmo gives kids good advice to stay healthy during flu season. "Come on! Wash your hands with Elmo! Wash, wash, wash!" he says. And "Sneeze into your arm with Elmo. Ah-choo!"
Everyone should watch this PSA -- not just kids. If we learned anything from the Tickle Me Elmo craze of 1996, it's that when Elmo speaks (or giggles), America listens.
